Writing: Heart vs Mind

Writing to me is therapeutic where you can channel whatever in your mind and heart. Sometimes the words doesn’t come from your mind, but your heart felt it, the mind just puts into words what our heart felt. Sometimes the mind speaks its own words and writes it down and the heart will either help or don’t help at all.

Sometimes when we are angry, we write based on what our heart wants to say and kept for so long. Sometimes when we are calmed, the mind writes based on what they think. And sometimes both of our mind and heart, speaks the same language and writes it effortlessly without having to think much.

The reason why I say ‘heart’ is because even our own heart have its own ‘mind’. They may not have the brain, but they have an instinct that thinks for itself.

And often the case we have to negotiate and decide based on either one of them or both. There are decisions where your mind and heart agrees with each other, but most of the times, its against each other.

Sometimes, the mind is right but their heart can be wrong. Sometimes their heart felt right, but the mind says they are going to make a mistake. But it is up to us to decide which one we should listen to.

But, whenever both our mind and heart synchronize and finds comfort with each other’s opinion, you know you have made the right choice.
